Keith A. Smith Books
Book 1 of a series of books on book binding and bindings by Keith Smith. Books in the series include; Non-Adhesive Binding, Exposed Spine Sewings, The Structure of the Visual Book, Smith's Sewing Single Sheets, Bookbinding for Book Artists, Text in the Book Format & Two Hundred Books by Keith Smith: An Anecdotal Bibliography.
Simply the most informed series of books on book binding and binding styles. The emphasis in most of the books is for non-adhesive bindings.
Some bindings described are very complex and an acompanying video would be advantagous (unfortunatly I am unaware of any intention to create an accompanying video series to the books).
This is the must have book for any student of book binding.
